Preorder Offer: The Wildcard by Kathryn Hore

IFWG is very pleased to offer preorders for Kathryn Hore’s riveting thriller, The Wildcard

Jem doesn’t do risk. He doesn’t play games with chance. At least not until his ex-girlfriend shows up on his doorstop in tears and tricks him into signing for an impossible debt.

Thrust into an underworld of card players who bet anything they can think of – favours, information, secrets, even coffee – Jem has to figure his way out of a debt he doesn’t understand, in a world where the rules are twisting, complex and never explained. Relying only on a woman who plays life like she plays a game of poker, and drawn to a young man who offers temptations Jem’s not sure he can trust, there is only one thing he is clear on: the consequences of losing in this crowd. Because the last guy to owe a debt like his was just found floating face down in the ocean, and if Jem doesn’t sort this out fast, he could be next. 

The Wildcard will be released on 15 April 2021, world-wide. Preorders are open until 20 March, and the book will be shipped and arrive at its destination on or close to release date. Ebook versions will be available for preorder soon, via the relevant ebook online stores.

Preorder: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse

dawn-of-the-apocalypse-6X9

IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased to announce that Lee Murray’s middle grade novel, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse, will be released worldwide on 7 October 2019, and preorders are now available.

Chaos’ latest game is positively epic. Just look at the trailer: the hero Bastion Axestone striding through the city streets, fireballs exploding around him and zombies staggering in his wake. Seb can’t wait to play it. He downloads the works. Explosive effects, 3D upgrade, heavy metal soundtrack and a subliminal quotient—whatever that is.

But the next day, Seb and his friends wake up to an apocalypse. Their teachers are missing in action, coach doesn’t come to practice, and Seb’s dad spends all day in his pyjamas. Even worse, not only has Mum not been in to work, she hasn’t bothered to brush her teeth. It’s beginning to look as if every grown-up in Bridgetown—possibly the entire world—has been zombified. They’re obsessed with their personal electronic devices and it’s all Seb’s fault because he’s the one who downloaded the game in the first place. Now, he has to fix it. But how? It’s not as if he can un-download the game. Along with his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, Seb has to figure out how to reverse the effect of the computer virus. But in the meantime, the zombies need feeding, Seb’s little sister, Ava, needs minding, and someone has to walk the dog…

Preorder: The Year of the Fruit Cake by Gillian Polack

The Year Of The Fruit Cake Front Cover With Text

ALL PREORDER OPPORTUNITIES ARE NOW CLOSED.

IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased to announce that Gillian Polack’s science fiction novel, The Year of the Fruit Cake, will be released worldwide on 10 June 2019 (in Kindle format) and 1 August (Australia/UK/NZ) / 16 September (North America) – print version, and preorders are now available.

Humankind is in danger.
The Year of the Fruit Cake tells of the Earth-based life of a mostly-mindwiped alien anthropologist inhabiting a human perimenopausal body instead of her own more rational body with its capacity to change gender. This alien has definitely shaken a great intergalactic empire by sitting in cafés with her new best friends. Chocolate may or may not have played a part. Will humanity survive?
Polack describes her novel as, “Bleak. It’s political. It’s angry. It’s also sarcastic, cynical and funny.”
Print preorder offer has now expired. Print and ebook available now in non-North American regions.

Preorder/Cover Reveal: Switch by Rowena Evans

Switch front cover

Rowena Evans‘ mid-teen science fiction thriller, Switch, will be released in Australia, New Zealand and the UK on 15th February 2019. This is the long-awaited sequel to Drums and Power Lines, and continues almost immediately following the prior events. It will be released at a later date in North America.

“Evans captures the Australian country landscape beautifully,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia, “and yet the parallel worlds depicted are also universal in character, and at the same time, slightly askew from what we perceive as normal. Drums and Power Lines was a delightful, thrilling read, and I am sure middle grade and young adult readers – as well as adults as often is the case – will love this next chapter in the continuing story.”

Spectacular artwork for the cover is by Rowena Evans.

Ivan hurried away from the ridge. His heart beat fast and his hands were shaking. The shock of seeing Cal appear was considerable. Yes, he and Reenie had persuaded Hugo to play his drums at sunset, but Ivan realized now that the last thing he expected was to succeed.

Ivan, Cassie and Wilfred, Reenie and Cal desperately miss each other; the friendships they made in their similar but different parallel worlds six months ago.

When Cal reappears in Ivan and Reenie’s world, the turmoil and restlessness that has lurked in each of them explodes into real life, throwing all, and the unsuspecting Jess, into a whirlwind of adventure, uncertainty and discovery.

Preorder/Early Sale Offer: Contrition by Deborah Sheldon

contrition-sheldon-final-front-cover

Deborah Sheldon‘s new, confronting horror novel, Contrition will be released on 3 September 2018 in Australia/UK and New Zealand, and for a short time IFWG will make direct sales. North American release will occur in November.

PREORDERS HAVE NOW CEASED

In her late teens, Meredith Berg-Olsen had all the makings of a runway model. Now in her late forties, after everything she had been through – including horrors that John could only guess at – she looked bloodless instead of pale, skeletal instead of slender, more dead than alive.

John Penrose has two secrets. One is the flatmate he keeps hidden from the world: his high-school sweetheart, Meredith. His other secret is the reason he feels compelled to look after her.

Contrition is a horror story with noir undertones and an atmosphere of mounting dread. .
